Atlantic Antic – The Biggest Street Festival in NY


On Sunday, 29 September me and a couple of friends went to Atlantic Antic, a street festival taking place in Brooklyn, which attracts thousands of people every year. It’s the biggest festival of its kind in New York. Before the event I read that „on this day, Atlantic Avenue turns into a true ocean of goodies, dominated by celebration of the tradition of food, art, music, shopping an

Chelsea Market


Chelsea Market is a multi-store building located in Manhattan, at 15th Street between 9th and 10th Avenues (75 9th Ave.). It was built in the Ninetieth Century, which makes it very old by New York standards. It first served as a bakery. Currently it’s one of the most fashionable places in New York and an absolute must-see. When I first visited the place with my friend Mariusz, I was disap

Patricia Field’s House of Sin


 Patricia Field, 306 Bowery, Manhattan Even though Manhattan keeps providing me with thrills, I don’t recall when was the last time that a mere visit to a store pleased me so much as the one I made a couple of days ago. I went inside, because my attention was caught by some very colorful and slightly campy items displayed outside. That, together with a mannequin (a woman-umbrella) next

„I Envy You New York” – Are you sure…?


Lower East side, Manhattan, September 2013 „I envy you New York”. I don’t know how many times have I heard this sentence. I firmly believe that the people saying it have good intentions, but I’m becoming more and more irritated by it. How come? First of all: if you happen to be single, untied by family or a partner, you don’t have a job that gives you 300% satisf

Cockroaches!!!


I know there are no cochroaches in the picture, but I just don't feel like posting any pictures with them. You can see how destroyed some buildings actually are - cochroaches are happy about that. How do you picture a typical Manhattan flat? Spacious, clean, with a gorgous view of the skyline in each window, right…? It may happen – if you are rich. Reality is more brutal, though.Wh

The Green Card Dreams


It happens to me more and more often that, upon hearing questions like: „Why can’t you stay over there as long as you’d like?”, or: „Why don’t you find a job there?”, I need to take a deep breath and count to ten. It’s time to finally explain it. As a Pole, in order to get to the United States, you need a visa. Getting a tourist visa valid for 10

MoMA PS1 Warm Up Party


MoMA PS1, 31 August, 2013, photo by Rajas Karnik At last I visited a place known to most of New Yorkers: MoMA PS1 (and decided to celebrate my birthday here!). It’s a quintessence of New York itself. It’s surrounded by concrete and steeped in art. It’s full of fashionable, smiling people, enjoying their drinks and dancing to the rhythm of new bands. Maybe it’s not exactl

Life On the Go


Union Squre, June 2013 One of the many differences between New York streets and those of any other city is that you can truly experience the so-called everyday life here. In Poland, as well as in many other European countries, there’s a clear division between what’s private and what’s public. Here it matters far less. The main borderline should be drawn rather between what&rsq
